Paper Piecing Thanks -- for QKR Stampede

It's Friday!  That means it's time for a new challenge at the QKR Stampede Challenge Blog.  This week, our optional theme is 'Paper Piecing'.  

Do you ever have an idea that turns out totally different in real life than it did in your head?  Such is the case with this paper pieced card.  I had it planned as a summertime-looking green leaf, but just couldn't find the paper to make it look right with the accompanying acorn:

This paper pieced leaf is a digi stamp from Eureka Stamps, the sister company to QKR Stampede. It's ES-digi10402 Open Oak Leaf.  The 'thanks!' sentiment is also from Eureka Stamps.  It is ES-digi4402 lg thanks.

I printed the Open Oak Leaf stamp twice -- once onto yellow card stock, once onto the red old wallpaper digital paper.  The second one I fussy cut, then pieced onto the yellow card stock. 

I used Spellbinders dies on this card, digital papers by MHKDesigns, and a bit of ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.

I hope you can join our Paper Pieced challenge this week at QKR Stampede Challenge Blog.  We've got great prizes, it's anything goes with an optional twist, and I'd love to see what you make!
